"Royalty Free" is a video game that looks like a gallery, containing a curated selection of custom plant objects made by fans of The Sims franchise. By exploring the visual style and social-technical activities of players outside the game, it both appreciates and speculates about the potential future of 3D computer graphics as an expressive medium.
